Roberts Sound 80 DAB/FM RDS Stereo Digital Radio with 3 Way Speaker System
Roberts Sound 80 DAB/FM RDS Stereo Digital Radio with 3 Way Speaker System
Price: £86.00

4.0 out of 5 stars A satisfactory replacement for my last DAB radio which died., 27 Jun 2011
Easy enough to set up and works fine. A bit fussy when changing stations by turning then pressing tuner but good pre-set buttons.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just right, 12 Sep 2010
A good £10-worth: compact, stylish and soundly made. Good value and good quality. And by the way, when the goods were damaged in transit on the first delivery, the replacement came with a couple of days - excellent service!

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact and very effective, 16 May 2010
Used with bedroom TV to get Freeview. Amazingly small but entirely effective. What a contrast with its predecessor which had wires everywhere and didn't work from one day to the next. Highly recommended.

What to say? - cost next to nothing, arrived immediately, attractively curvy shape, responsive and quiet keys.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value and simple to set up, 16 May 2010
Out of the box, plug in, follow the on-screen instructions, watch it. Could hardly be simpler.

Lovely clear screen, pleasant colours, remote easy to use. Only problem is we can't get a couple of channels - probably local reception - and also the blue stand-by light is a bit too bright for me. It was something of a gamble as I'd never heard of the make but has turned out to be excellent value for money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eyecatching Lola Rose ring, 26 Dec 2009
Bought as a gift for my wife to go along with her increasing supply of red clothes. A lovely stylish ring, a bit darker than the website image, almost maroon, but very pretty and just the kind of thing she likes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Concise guide to a tropical garden island, 9 May 2009
Everything you need to know in a slim guide. St Lucia doesn't really have tourist attractions as such - it's simply a wonderfully scenic volcanic island with a luxuriant rain forest fringed by resorts and beaches - so there is less to say than for more multi-faceted islands, but this guide does the job perfectly well.

4.0 out of 5 stars The smell of fear, 9 May 2009
Lovecraft seems to fall somewhere between Edgar Allan Poe, Aleister Crowley and Dennis Wheatley. Perhaps a bit too much quasi-satanism/black magic for my liking but absolutely brilliant descriptions which leave almost everything to the reader's imagination: foul stenches, looming human/demonic/vampiric figures, imposing and sometimes subterranean landscapes. Marvellous for those who prefer the suspense of anticipation to the crudely gory.
